the main, underlying story lines for both candidates. so, for joe biden, does he reinforce this idea that the white house is kind of tired and out of ideas? that's what the romney campaign has been pushing. for ryan, does he underline this idea that the ticket is basically hiding their true beliefs and their true numbers? if either one of those does that, then it carries on the story line. otherwise, it's just sort of fodder for a couple of days, but it just essentially disappears. >> john, there's a generation gap between the vice president and the congressman. how do you think that will affect the tone of the debate, if at all? >> reporter: well, it will be an interesting thing to watch. you can imagine it affecting the tone in terms of remember when geraldine ferraro debated george bush, there was a gender gap in that case, and she snapped back at him when he seemed to be patronizing on the question of foreign policy. there could be a situation here where joe biden could look sort of a little, you know, look, sunny, and that would end up being kind of a gaffe. but i think other th

if the president can do the same. >> you coached romney, brett. how would you approach him if you were the president and what would you say are his weak spots? >> well, both men are not very good when they get on the defensive. so, you know, both have to be on the offense. but that's tricky in a town hall debate because the audience is also a participant in the debate and so i think going too strongly on offense like vice president biden did a couple of nights ago would be a mistake. so you have to -- you have to balance between going on offense but also making sure you're effectively connecting with the voters in the audience. >> alan, brett mentioned we're going a town hall style format. how significantly different is that. from what we've seen over the years, how do you win here? >> it's a very different format. it's a completely different feel. brett is absolutely right this question is how aggressive you can be. the important thing for the candidates is to really listen to those questions that are being asked and be very responsive to those. people hate it when politicians duck qu
